SDCC 2015: Affleck & Johns Writing Batman Solo Film

Click to Enlarge

Well ain’t that something. Deadline is reporting that Ben Affleck and DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, the architect of…well, the entire DC multiverse of the past 15 years, are teaming up to write a standalone Batman script. Affleck will direct the new Bat-flick (aaaah? AAAH?) after his next movie, Live by Night.

The movie will “reflect” the post BvS and Justice League status quo for Bats, meaning we probably won’t see it before 2018. I am cautiously optimistic about this news.
